Class 1

Teachers – Mrs Rachel Garner & Mrs Jo Tetlow

Autumn Term 2018 – Second Half

Where did that first half term go?!

Please find below Class 1’s topic information for this new half term. Our topic is called ‘Wanted: the perfect pet’.

We hope it gives you an idea of the things we’ll be doing and learning about this half term. We will start our term with finding out about different types of pets and their needs. We’ll have a vets role play area – if you have any pet carriers and stuffed animal toys that we could nurse back to health we’d love to play with them! (Nothing that’s too precious to you.)

Foundation Stage Children:

Year 1 Children:

As part of our learning about animals and what they need to survive we would like to invite children (with an accompanying adult) to bring their pet to school on a Wednesday afternoon at 3pm. Please see below for further details.

Before we know it we will be heading into Christmas! We will find out about the meaning of Christmas and how Christians celebrate it. Prepare yourselves for glitter-covered children coming home!

Huge thanks to parents who have been able to spare time to read in school with children at the beginning or end of a day – much appreciated and so very valuable, thank you.

A few reminders:

  • PE kits need to be left in school. Keep a spare pair of pants/tights in PE bags if you think it necessary.
  • Please remember to send your child to school with a named water bottle and a fruit snack.
  • Do remember to label all uniform.
  • Mrs Tetlow will be in Class 1 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
  • Mrs Garner will be in Class 1 every Thursday and Friday.
  • Mrs Leeming will be in Class 1 to support us on a Monday.
  • Mrs Weeks will be in Class 1 to support us every morning from Tuesday to Friday.

Please pop in to see us if you have any questions.

Bring in your pet!

As part of our learning about pets and what they need to survive we would like to invite children (with an accompanying adult) to bring their pet to school on a Wednesday afternoon at 3pm.

There will be 2 slots each Wednesday for the rest of this term, for children to bring in their pets. Pets will visit both classes 1 and 2 on that afternoon. Whilst one pet is visiting class 1, the other will visit class 2 and then swap.

Children will need to be prepared to talk about how they care for their pet; what it needs to survive!

For example, they might mention –

  • What it eats and drinks
  • Where the animal sleeps/keeping its bedding/home clean
  • Exercise
  • Love

And so on

If there are any Year 1 and Year 2 children who have not yet shared their pet with us they are very welcome to

If you would like to take part, please see Mrs Bestwick or Mrs Tetlow to sign up for a slot.

We look forward to meeting your pets!
